My husband shared to me a story about Billy Connors who was not a great athlete but many people consider him to be the best pitching coach in major league baseball today. New York Yankees manager Joe Torre said: “Sometimes the best players can’t coach, because they were such naturals… whereas guys like Billy had to work at it, and pay attention to all the little things.
Connors also knows and cares about the men he coaches. Al of them have been to his home for a meal. His genuine concern opens their ears to what he has to say.
